We stayed overnight in a chalet as part of our tour. The staff, accommodation, food and resort were first class. Wonderful game drives. We would recommend to anyone and wish we could have stayed longer.

We took an evening Day safari as soon as we reached Garden Route Game Lodge. Nice experience to see Big 5 behavior by the end of the day.

When driving the Garden Route, one can easily include in the trip this game safari. All big 5 are seen in aprox. 2 hours. Perfect for kids and for those who can not travel to Kruger, spending days over a real safari.

Would come again, all well organised . Small animal herds but enough for a start, you are overwhelmed with the first impressions
